Riders Send Fulton and Capiccotti to Hamilton
The Riders have sent two veteran players to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Heading east are offensive lineman Xavier Fulton and defensive lineman Justin Capicciotti with the Riders getting back defensive lineman Linden Gaydosh and receiver Tommy Streater along with a 4th and 7th round draft pick in the 2017 draft.
Gaydosh is in his third CFL season after being taken with the first overall pick in the 2013 CFL draft while Streater joined Hamilton’s practice roster in August, but has yet to play a CFL game.
Fulton spent five seasons with the Riders starting all 75 games played. He was a member of the Riders 2013 Grey Cup championship.
Capicciotti was in his first season with Riders after signing with the team as a free agent in February. He played 14 games, with eight starts, registering 24 defensive tackles and two quarterback sacks.
The Riders are off until next Saturday in Toronto.
